Organiser's Description

This is our Lucky Dip event of the year where you can run any distance and choose any medal form our wide selection of medals. This will include some of our challenge medals that are particularly large and heavy. This is on a first come first serve basis, but there are a huge selection to choose from We are hosting this in the beautiful Bryn Bach Park in Tredegar

Each lap around the country park is approximately 1.65 miles and is on tarmac around a beautiful lake. The park has toilets, plenty of parking, a cafe and children's play area.

If you are running a marathon and chasing 100MC numbers, our events are fully inclusive for this purpose

Aid station at the start which will have squash, water, coke, sweets, crisps etc

We have several qualified first aiders, our own defib and we use our own chip timing which is a velcro strap you can wear on your wrist or ankle You must start your last lap before 5 hours 59

We welcome runners or all abilities and speeds and you are welcome to rest between laps and are encouraged to have a chat and make new friends. All our runners are relaxed and the atmosphere is one of encouragement and support.

No pressure and never a DNF

You have 7 hours in which you can run for 1 hour or the full 7 hours. The beauty is you don't decide how far you want to go until the day. Just turn up and go with the flow.

Run anything from 5k right up to an ultra with drinks and sweets every lap after 1.75 miles around a flat course by a lake.

Just complete one lap to take a pick of any medal from our 4 years of events...and some of them are huge.
